With the festive period now largely over, the Christmas and Boxing Day sales have morphed into the best New Year's sales as we set sail on 2024. With that in mind, it's time to treat yourself to some deals – and the Argos New Year's sales are here with plenty on offer. So, it's time to flick through the (virtual) catalogue – except you needn't do so yourself, as T3's team has done the hard work for you.
Our expert team has been in the tech game for decades with our combined experience, so we know good products when we see them – indeed we review hundreds each year, as per our How We Test page – and below we've picked out a top selection from Argos' sales that are the best-of-best right now. We'll be updating this page as the sales come and go to ensure it's up to date with the best kit to kick off your 2024!
Reebok Jet 100z Folding Treadmill:
was £699, now £479 at Argos
Tis the season to get fit (as per T3's Get Fit 2024 feature)! If you've been thinking about buying a decent folding treadmill to have at home (without taking up all your space) then this is a great deal that you won't find outside of Argos. It's an investment for now and for years to come – and will make running while it's wet and windy all the more bearable!
Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Gen):
was £99, now £59.99 at Argos
T3's Tech Editor has been using Ring for years, having even hard-wired the product in to avert any battery-changing needs, and finds it a game-changer for deliveries to the front door (there's a lot of tech parcels coming and going in this job). This half-price deal is a no-brainer, for sure.
LG OLED A2 48-inch:
was £999, now £799 at Argos
There's no doubt that LG makes among the best OLED TVs that money can buy – which is why the T3 team selected the brand as number one in that expert guide. While the C2 OLED was a fan-favourite, if you're looking for a more affordable bargain then the step-down LG A2 OLED delivers similar picture quality and is an easy recommendation in the sales.
Horizon Forbidden West (PS5):
was £69.99, now £55.99 at Argos
If you got yourself a shiny new PS5 (although that Xbox X deal up top is arguably more tempting) and want to add an epic game – it's T3's Tech Editor's fave release of 2022 – then the PlayStation-exclusive Horizon sequel is a stunning title. Playing as Aloy, you'll traverse a futuristic world filled with robotic dinosaurs and try to solve a potentially apocalyptic issue.
Google Pixel 7a:
was £449, now £379 at Argos
"Affordable Android doesn't get better than this" exclaimed T3's review of the Pixel 7a. It's got the power, the cameras and the looks to impress. T3's Staff Writer went on to write about why the Pixel 7a was his 'obsession', so it's a much-loved mid-level Android handset among the team here. Especially in one of the brighter colourways.
Meta Quest 2:
was £399, now £249.99 at Argos
Fancy yourself a slice of virtual reality? Meta's previous-generation headset – it can't do the more advanced augmented reality of the Quest 3 that launched more recently (a long-time T3 freelancer compares Quest 2 to Quest 3 here) – is a great route into classic VR. It doesn't need a PC or other setup stations for calibration either, which makes it great value for the whole family.
Philips Hue colour bulb:
was £54.99, now £45 at Argos
Many of the T3 team have Philips Hue smart bulbs, which can be easily controlled through a smart home setup. The coloured ones, such as this B22 bayonet (screw fit is also available) are typically expensive, so it's great to see the price down to a more affordable level.
Sony Xperia 10 V:
was £349.99, now £299.99 at Argos
At this price, this is one of the best affordable phones available. Boasting a 5000 mAh battery normally saved for phones at least twice the price, and an all too rare headphone jack, if you love listening to music this should be your next handset.
LEGO Globe Model:
was £200 now £160 at Argos
That's where we live, but made of LEGO. This 2585 piece model globe is a challenging build for avid lego fans, and best of all it even spins! A superb ornament for any office/coffee table.
